500 ml bottle: BBD 13th Aug 2017. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 17th Feb 2017. Deep, dark mahogany body, foaming lightly tanned head. Roasted, toasted malts lead the nose and taste with both chocolate and toffee flavours to the fore, some dark fruit notes too (raisins, plums, dates, dried figs). Liked it.

5/10/16 bottle at home. Oh my, this is what a strong ale should be like. Malt overload but so well done that it works. Satisfying from pour to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mt_hall (195) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottled. A very dark red-brown (but not as dark as a stout.) Has a good sized head of fine, light brown foam. Aromas of toffee, burnt caramel, and malt, with some freshness to balance and some spice (clove?) A sweet start in the mouth and then a drier, spicy finish. Good body and warmth; well balanced. Excellent.
